I am the great great granddaughter of Lydia and James King. I saw you posted a picture of her. How are you related and do you have more pictures?

RE: Blass Family - Columbia County
I'm fairly distantly related to the Blass family by my uncle through marriage, Raymond Blass. He was a son of William and Rose (Seelbach) Blass. I just enjoy documenting Numidia and Catawissa area cemeteries and learn about the families.

Please accept the transfer of your Great Grandparents and Uncle. I like to keep families together. So as I say to all the people I transfer a memorial to, "Treat them well for they are a part of your family history". Sincerely, Robert Miller

RE: William Durrence, Sr. Family Tree
Hi, Mr. Blass. I have this on Welcome William Durrence:

Welcome William Durrence was a pioneer settler of the Bulloch/Tattnall/Liberty County area of Georgia. He was born in 1737 in North Carolina, one of two sons of Samuel Durrance. By 1787 he migrated to Georgia, either alone or with Francis (Nothing much is known about Francis, he may have died young or remained in North Carolina.) He was commissioned First Lieutenant in the 1st Company of the Effingham County Militia, five years from his last proved record in North Carolina. He served with fellow North Carolinians Capt. John Everette (1743-1820) and 2nd Lieutenant Aaron Cone (1766-1815), all from Tyrell County, North Carolina. William received numerous land grants in the Bulloch/Tattnall area, four on the Canoochee River and one on Lott's Creek. All this land is now in modern-day Evans County (since 1914), and in the present-day fort Stewart area. In 1790 William received a land grant of 150 acres or the Canoochee River in Liberty County, and in 1793 he received a land grant of 200 acres in Effingham County, later Bulloch County. In 1903 he received an additional grant of 200 acres in Liberty County, and in 1805 & 1807 he is listed on the Land Lottery of that county, and appears on the tax list there in 1805. Again, in 1808 he received a land grant of 100 acres in Bulloch County. He appeared on the Jury list of Liberty County in 1790 and 1806. William Durrence was also listed in a petition concerning the Pine Barrens Speculation. This Speculation was a land fraud on the same scale as the Yazoo Frauds but never acquired the notoriety. 295 signatures were on the petition, including many well known family names like DeLoach, Hendricks, Mizell, and (Georgia governor John Adam) Treutlen. As he became older and more mature, he dropped the "Welcome" first name and became known as simply William Durrence. William and wife Elizabeth Williams Durrence had 9 children, with three married children of Phillip Tippins and three marrying children of Hardy DeLoach, both Revolutionary Soldiers. He lived in Liberty County the final years of his life and died there in 1808.
